Dedicated to my son that's about to be born
So by the time you people hear this record
My son'll be born
And I gotta teach him about life

Listen, to my little man, you can never have too little plans
Always bring your game direct, cut out the middle man
Life is full of sacrifice, for truth you might have to fight
Someone'll bring you down 'cause they ain't livin' right

Be sure to use your mind, though, look for all the signs, yo
Don't want to make a move too quick and get left behind, yo
Be in command of whatever you encounter
Appreciate your blessings, son, you'll see what it amounts to

Obtainin' your goals, maintainin' control
Self-respect helps you to protect your soul
Never give up, always be ready to try
Walk your own walk and keep your head to the sky

Little thing now here you are
Starin' at me with those baby eyes
All you do is sleep, eat and cry
But one day, you're gonna be askin' me why

Everything I know, I'm gonna tell you about
Anything I don't, you'll figure out
'Cause livin' is learnin' and learnin' is livin'
And then you pass it on

And to my home boys, who clearly understand
What it really takes to be a man
And what it means to be the head of fam
The ups and downs of life plus the choices we make
Causes to reevaluate directions we take

And bein' up in the club is mad fun 'til they act dumb
And everyone still packs
It's time now for us to seperate the mediocre from the great
Keep all the jokers from the game

I've played my position, so why don't you try to play yours?
I've made my decision, plus you're in my prayers
My life is changed now, plus I got a shorty now
Mad responsibilities, it's like, I'm almost forty now

All the young girls wanna swing, my wifey says, she wants a ring
I wonder what the next days, are gonna bring?
We must live and fight for the right causes and be ready to die
I love you kid, so keep your head to the sky

Little thing now here you are
Starin' at me with those baby eyes
All you do is sleep, eat and cry
But one day, you're gonna be askin' me why

Everything I know, I'm gonna tell you about
Anything I don't, you'll figure out
'Cause livin' is learnin' and learnin' is livin'
And then you pass it on

Baby child, did you know?
Every since you fell out of the heavens
You make me wanna grow
So I'll share with you everything
Make little girls and boys
Grow up to be kings and queens

Little thing now here you are
Starin' at me with those baby eyes
All you do is sleep, eat, and cry
But one day, you're gonna be askin' me why

Everything I know, I'm gonna tell you about
Anything I don't, you'll figure out
'Cause livin' is learnin' and learnin' is livin'
And then you pass it on

Little thing now here you are
Starin' at me with those baby eyes
All you do is sleep, eat, and cry
But one day, you're gonna be askin' me why

Everything I know, I'm gonna tell you about
Anything I don't, you'll figure out
'Cause livin' is learnin' and learnin' is livin'
And then you pass it on
